Everyone who watches the tube this past week will understand the heartbreak of watching Haitians trying to survive the disastrous earthquake that has destroyed their country. Igor and I realize that probably the only thing we can do is to donate money to an agency that can help these people get the food, water and medical attention they so desperately need. We have decided to donate the proceeds from the sale of the Dream Web scarf/shawl (above) and the Purple Wave shawl below to the American Red Cross when they are sold through Shawls Unlimited.
Dream Web is woven in leno lace by Igor with some special novelty yarns he found at our local yarn store. Purple wave is a summer and winter weave using purple rayon and a great variegated purple chenille that is almost gone from my stash (darn!). It also has a great elastic quality that hugs the wearer's body.
I'll update this post once the shawls have been sold.
Update - Dream Web sold and the money was donated to the Red Cross. Purple Wave is still in my stash of stuff to sell. One of these days it will find a home!
